Iquitos

Iquitos is a city submerged in the Peruvian Amazon Region, which seen from the air, spreads out like a huge, green seemingly endless cloak. Linked to the world only by air and by the Amazon River, Iquitos is Peru’s most important city on the banks of the Amazon River, and home to one of the largest hydrographic systems in the world, the Amazon Basin.
